If God said it, He meant it!
In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore. And your Seed (Heir) will possess the gate of His enemies.
(Gen. 22:17 AMP)
You may not think that this blessing, spoken to Abraham, has anything to do with you, but it does:
So then, those who are people of faith are blessed and made happy and favored by God [as partners in fellowship] with the believing and trusting Abraham.
(Gal. 3:9 AMP)
Believers are "partners in fellowship," or "partners in faith," with Abraham. In Christ we are heirs of the covenant promises given to Abraham, the father of faith. We are "in Christ"; therefore, we will possess all that has been promised.

In Genesis 15, Abraham was told to look at the stars of heaven and count them, if he could:
And He brought him outside [his tent into the starlight] and said, Look now toward the heavens and count the stars—if you are able to number them. Then He said to him, So shall your descendants be.
(v. 5 AMP)
When God promises to multiply, He is not talking about anything small. He thinks BIG!

He wants you and I to begin to think outside the box of our past experiences and begin to count the stars. Soon, we will realize that it is impossible to count them. They are a multitude. God said that He would make each of us a multitude. In fact,we are to be a "multitude of nations."

The Bible says, "...his seed shall become a multitude of nations" (Gen 48:19).

Every Member A Multitude
The plan of God is that each one of us become a "multitude of nations." This will satisfy the heart of God because He wills that none be lost and that His house be full. The book of Revelation shows us a picture of heaven with an innumerable host before the throne of God:
After this I looked and a vast host appeared which no one could count, [gathered out] of every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages. These stood before the throne and before the Lamb; they were attired in white robes, with palm branches in their hands.
(Rev. 7:9 AMP)
The only way that there will be an innumerable host in heaven is for an innumerable host to be saved on earth. There is no second chance—the time is now. It is time that we look to our covenant promise and appropriate it by the resulting action of real faith.

First, we must pray for the harvest promise:
Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession.
(Ps. 2:8 AMP)
Then, we must put action to our prayer of faith and go to the lost. Jesus said:
Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news (the Gospel) to every creature [of the whole human race]. He who believes...and is baptized will be saved.... And these attesting signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages; They will pick up serpents; and [even] if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will get well.
(Mark 16:15-18)
Remember, God wants everyone to have access to the covenant promise. God will bless anyone who will believe what He says!
